The unruly artwork of Jesse Bercowetz is born out of a dark rural sensibility and is completely entrenched in the
contemporary American psyche. His work is fashioned through trial and error into material metaphor and holds no
allegiance to any one process or genre. Bercowetz is committed to a non-market driven collaborative process and
fostering interdependence through radical arts practices.

Jesse Bercowetz creates large-scale installations that may make you feel a little queasy, as if you have just fallen down a rabbit hole of paranoia and conspiracy. A confounding assortment of objects mixes fantasy and reality in works that comment on the subconscious of contemporary America. His work often has apocalyptic undertones and awe-inspiring titles. Bercowetz’s art holds elements of the fantastical, the futuristic and the historical in its materials, design and ideas. Part mobile, part machine-like and completely entrenched in the contemporary psyche, Bercowetz’s work is mindful of humanity’s nature to be irrational, curious and visionary.
